how to apply


Naturopathic medicine is a complete and co-ordinated approach to health care. It is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies and gentle techniques.

The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) offers Canada's only four-year, full-time professional program in naturopathic medicine. Upon completion of the four-year program, graduates receive a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) diploma, and must pass international licensing examinations before registration is granted to practise as a naturopathic doctor.

Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine are specialists in natural medicine and preventative health care, integrating scientific knowledge with traditional healing wisdom. They are health-care professionals who use safe, gentle, non-invasive therapies including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, etc., to assist the whole person in maximizing the body's inherent self-healing capacity.
